Viewers watching the 2018 Winter Olympics, held in Pyeongchang, South Korea, tuned in to NBC for the opening ceremony with high expectations — and plenty of questions. Where is Pita Taufatofua, the flag-bearer for Tonga, and how much oil is he slathered in? Can Katie Couric, Mike Tirico and Joshua Cooper Ramo possibly live up to Bob Costas' commentary during the ceremony? And, wait, are those kids going to dance nonstop through the Parade of Nations?

Suffice it to say that the 2018 Winter Olympics' opening ceremony did not disappoint.

From the U.S. team walking out to "Gangnam Style" (of course) and the arrival of North Korea's "army of beauties" to U.S. speed skater Shani Davis skipping the opening ceremony in protest and viewers confusing the South Korean flag for the Pepsi logo, these were some of the most talked-about moments thus far. Because, really, the Olympics have just begun.

Be sure to check back through the course of the Winter Olympics, as we'll continue to update this space with history-making wins, any controversies that arise, any hilarious eagle-eye observations on Twitter and more. Let the games continue to trend!
